Is a picture really really worth a thousand words? Well, to Facebook, an Instagram Photo Album might just be worth a billion dollars. Yes, that is right, Your Instagram pictures are now likely to be a a part of Facebook, because Facebook just lately bought Instagram.
I’ve to admit that personally I have not used Instagram that a lot, especially because I don’t take a whole lot of photos with my smartphone. I take photos, but am not as a lot a photographer during my regular operating hrs than I most likely should be. And when I am really not operating, I do not make it a habit of carrying a smartphone. It appears like a great deal of people besides me really do use Instagram, and for that nine-person employees, I whole heartedly congratulate them on this new acquisition.
What is interesting to note, is that company, now really worth a billion dollars in cash and stock, only has 9 workers, who all became millionaires practically overnight using the acquisition by Facebook. Facebook will apparently be building on Instagram’s strengths and features and growing the app independently rather than just trying to integrate every thing into Facebook.
Mashable can also be reporting that “Facebook plans on keeping features within the app that allow photos to become published on other social networks, and also the capability to have followers and adhere to individuals who are not necessarily your Facebook friends.”
So, if you are into taking pictures and you are not an Instagram user but, then you definitely may also get on board with Instagram right now, as it apparently will be a bigger a part of our online social lives than we think. Particularly simply because Instagram has just gone mainstream.
